I am Simon Liu from the University of Hong Kong.This blog is a record of my observations and insights during the field visits of HKU course - "Development Case Studies" on various famous development cases in Hong Kong. These cases are vivid demonstrations of culture and history of HK’s development and their transformation under the economic and internationalization trend. By this blog, I hope to illustrate their history and presence and try to explore their underlying backgrounds and scenarios with my thoughts and understandings. Some are emerging development initiatives in Hong Kong like the “Energizing Kowloon East ”,”Leisure and Tourism Opportunities in Island South” etc.; Some are unique development patterns of Hong Kong like the “Public Housing”, “Small Houses” etc.; Others are special heritages and sites where the culture and history of Hong Kong thrive on like “Pok Fu Lam”, “Fanling & Sheung Shui” etc.
